Going Nude in Barcelona And The Way The Nudity Laws Are Altering

Will Being Openly Bare in Barcelona Be Outlawed?
Naked in Barcelona – Public Nudity Laws are Changing in Barcelona, and it is not for the better. Were you imagining that your European nakation could be clothes-free with the more lenient laws on nudity over there? Well the rules are changing in Catalonia’s capital. Up until now public nudity was permitted, and the Barcelona City Council even put out a brochure in 2004 called “Expressing Yourself in Nudity” which contained pictures of naked people around the city in parks, on the metro, etc.
It pointed out the law “does not include any post for sanctions against public nudity.” This sounds pretty revolutionary, considering you can’t do any of those things in the nude in NYC. (Let us design a booklet like that for NYC please 😉
But I Want To Be Nude In Barcelona !!!!

But it appears that folks will have to put their trousers back on beginning late April as they are banning public nudity. From http://troyxxx.com/tube/i-started-a-nudist-group/ : “A committee of the city council approved a draft resolution empowering the police to prevent people on the road who were naked or improperly dressed and to require them to cover themselves or face fines of up to $700.”
Seemingly this is an attempt to bring a better quality and http://nudismsite.com/tube/soak-up-some-rays-nude-of-course/ of tourists, ie. not the ones who are visiting for mad parties with cheap alcohol and nude people obviously. Considering few folks went openly naked in the first place, I don’t see how prohibiting it’ll help with crazy tourism issues. Well let’s hope nothing changes on the nudist beaches! Read more in the NY Times.
*Update* Public nudity has been formally prohibited in Barcelona. Here’s an article about the top nude beaches in Barcelona, where nudity remains permitted.
